Based on how you wrote the equation, I interpret your equation to be $$\frac{7}{8}w=14$$. Of course, we are solving for w by isolating it:

 $$\frac{7}{8}w=14$$ Multiply by 8/7 on both sides of the equation. Doing this will eliminate the fraction. $$w=\frac{14}{1}*\frac{8}{7}$$ Notice that the 14 and 7 have a GCF of seven. Noticing this will ease the simplification process. $$w=\frac{14}{1}*\frac{8}{7}=\frac{2}{1}*\frac{8}{1}=16$$

Therefore, $$w=16$$.
